Dedrick Williams

Suspect Dedrick D. Williams, 22, of Pompano Beach, was arrested Wednesday and charged with 1st-degree murder and grand theft auto in connection with the shooting death of rapper XXXTentacion.

Dedrick Williams

Like XXXTentacion, Williams was a motorcycle enthusiast. His social media features many images of motorcycles, dirt bikes and ATV 4-wheelers. Williams may have bumped into the popular rapper at RIVA Motorsports, the largest motorbike and ATV dealer in Florida, where X was gunned down on Monday.

Dedrick Williams

Williams is a father of five. His family includes a biological son and four stepkids by his girlfriend. His only biological child was born while Williams was locked up.

Dedrick Williams

To feed his large family, Williams earned an honest living as an unlicensed tattoo artist. He used his social media accounts to advertise his services.

Dedrick Williams

Williams dropped stacks on expensive gold jewelry as well as custom motorbike parts. The price of gold per ounce today is $1,266 or $40,710 per kilo.

Dedrick Williams

Williams is very short, about 5-foot-4. His short stature probably caused feelings of inadequacy and a need to prove his manhood. His extensive criminal record included a November arrest for weapons possession.

    Two lives lost. For NOTHING

    Sad all around

  • Rere

    He sure is getting alot of publicity ??

  • Tiff J

    Is he a little person? (I hope that's the PC term, don't want to offend anyone) His body proportions read like a little person's.

  • MookieFly

    Whoop I thought he was standing on his knees in this last pic. God bless the little people.

    I'm not sure why XXXTenacious is getting all this attention. All I want to say on the topic is RIP and let's move on

  • Thingamajig

    Anything under 5'6 is short for a man.

  • Phillybruh

    Wait just a cotton picking minute are we trying to normalize a murderer?

  • Drea982

    I. Don't. Believe. This.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Bet he has a public defender bc he spent all his money on dumb shyt.

    cry me a river.... what Men brings in kids to this world then kills another Man it could be his Kids one day... All for WHAT?

  • Ni Ni

    I want to hear more details that connect him to the crime.

  • Ni Ni

    No, he's just short.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    I want to read the arresting affidavit. 11 felonies and only 22 should have never gotten out ?????

  • iNCOGNITO?

    ctfu@him being VERY short?

  • justlooking

    Other than eye witness, which I read had cell phone footage.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I could care less about this cat ... ?

  • justlooking

    Log off Mookie...standing on his knees. ?????

  • http://bitchbecomesher.com Tasha Nicole

    I hate to say this but shoot anything under 5'10 is like ummm for me. But hey I'm giant for a woman, I'm 5'11. :-)

  • Ni Ni

    Oh, i didn't know there was footage of him.

  • sunni_daze

    This don't seem off to anyone else. He was caught 24hrs later and we still trying to solve Biggie and Pac killer. I've read where people are paid to take a fall for crime they didn't commit.

  • oshh16

    **off topic, people at work that brag/low key boasting, tell all their business, comings, goings... annoy me LOL. Everybody in earshot gots to know what you doing, daily.

  • Libra80sBaby

    So "Roscoe" outchere killin....smh

  • MookieFly
  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    And he might be serving the rest of his life in prison, leaving those 5 kids without a father...
    Did he really think he could just kill a man in broad daylight and go on living his life as usual like nothing happened? These dudes are so dumb.

  • Carrington

    He probably mad cause he ugly. Ugly people will do that. They will kill you so that they go up a notch on the attractive scale.

  • Renee26

    Who cares...why make him famous or well known. He's a menace to society... Keep his azz locked up this time should be the only message being spread about him.

  • the guest

    Being a family man and tattoo artist does not excuse his being a criminal, thief, and suspected murderer. Why couldn't he commit to just being a family man and tattoo artist?

  • supastar

    he is the father of only one of the children

  • Yoni7

    What money?

  • MsVAllDay

    Exactly! That's what I'm saying. How are they connecting this man to this crime. I hope it's not just a case of we need a suspect so we are going to grab the first black man that makes sense.

  • MsVAllDay

    But I thought they were wearing masks?

  • MsVAllDay

    Forgot about that. Hilarious!!!!

  • Logan Roberts

    Stop glorifying this punk.

  • Coy little wink

    Grand theft auto...why?

    His stature surely gave him a complex...

  • Ghost

    I thought so too...but these kids with all these stupid tattoos all over there body are
    a help in identification! Why wear a mask when your arms and legs are covered with identifiable tattoos....smh

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    You know...the Instagram money ?

  • Bossy704

    He looks like a dwarf but claims to be taller than that. His legs seem about half as long as they should be. Just think he is a little more than "very short".

  • Thingamajig

    Lol... naw you’re right, I agree.

  • Ms..N

    Looking like Bushwick Bill love child!! Smdh

  • Rico768

    I love how Sandra includes psychological facts to give insight into behavior. Im here for entertainment but learn also.

    Sad young people with 5 and 8 kids. You just got grown yourself and have no time to enjoy or develope as an adult

  • We Can Do This

    I want to all I can about this disease. I want to know about his family tree because the apple doesn't fall to far...

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!

  • Bossy704

    People just want to brag on their kids and stuff they bought. Cars and bags and such. I keep on headphones.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld
  • Bossy704

    I think he is under 5'4 and a dwarf.

  • We Can Do This

    He posted a video on YouTube describing the murder and saying how the rapper begged for his life. If they charged him with first degree murder they have good evidence.

  • SpillyNillie

    I'm in knots!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    I thought he was standing on his knees
    ```````````````````````````````````````
    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!

  • SpillyNillie

    Fact #6...he can't tattoo....

  • dru and neil

    Thank you for mentioning his small stature. I saw the last picture and was like "is he a little person?" Lord only knows how inadequate being only 5'4" black American man, made him feel on a daily basis.
    The more I read about this murder, the more it really does seem like the killer just did this for thrills, to feel like a "big man" for just 24 measly hours.

  • Quitedeliteful

    OMG!!!!! This guy is an IDIOT!!!!!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    REVISE: Anything under 5'10 is short for a man....shorties are the worst...they were overlooked cause of their height and now they overcompensate with too much masculinity to prove they are a real man.... God made you short like a woman for a reason Sis...

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • We Can Do This

    No offense but we like the Amazon women...

  • Quitedeliteful

    One of the Roses down below said he was bragging about the murder on social media. Lil Man is going to go away for a very long time over this dumb shyt. This guy has to be retarded. Little man with a little brain I guess...

  • Pamela

    "Cotton picking minute".
    Lol

  • We Can Do This

    It's on Bossip. It's sad what the state of mind is now for uneducated young black males.

    They have nothing to live for.
    A regular job is beneath them.

  • my view

    They need more proof then his social media page to say he killed someone. I haven't seen any posts on the blog of him bragging of killing this young man. It shouldn't be that easy to lock someone up for life if you don't bare the burden of proof.

  • dru and neil

    I had someone at work once, so desperate for me to hear them say how much money his wife made, that he said it three times, in a group of people, before I acknowledged with a head nod, then he relaxed. He had been hitting on me, I curbed him because he's married, and he was feeling some kind of way.

  • Kayke

    5'4" my hinny....he's all of 4'11.
    And from what I read his bragging doesnt match with a random stick up.....I hope that's not all the evidence there is.

  • Hmmm~?

    Wait huh? This is not the boy off IG that everyone was saying killed him. This is someone who was investigated by the police.

  • Trace da Ace

    maaannn....not today....its Friday.....moving on-->

  • DREAM KARDASHIANS STROLLER

    “four stepkids by his girlfriend”. Those aren’t his stepkids then. They are simply the children of his girlfriend ?
    Lmao at people going in on his height or lack there of ?

  • We Can Do This

    They must have proof or they wouldn't have charged him with first degree murder. These aren't amateurs, they know how to prosecute.

  • Malai

    His lil short, murderous ass!! BUM!!

  • dru and neil

    I'm 5'7, I'd say anything under 5'10 is short for me as well, not that I haven't met great guys who were shorter. It's just a little awkward when your in heels.

  • TIKTIK

    I honestly don't think he is the guy on youtube. looking at the shoulders, I don't see tattoos and their builds are different. imma go back and look closer but..

  • BrownIsBack

    I could tell from those thick azz cuffs in his pants he's vertically challenged

  • BrownIsBack

    LMAO!!!!!!!

  • HalleMerry

    What?

  • oshh16

    LOL

  • Quitedeliteful

    Ima go take a look. smh...

  • Coy little wink

    OMG...this is my pet peeve...

  • oshh16

    I will do my headphones as well. esp if I am working on a project but mostly I just don't want to hear that ish fr fr.

  • MookieFly

    I was thinking the same thing! Aint that copper? I got one of those pans in my kitchen??

  • BrownIsBack

    I bought another car recently, a Malibu, so my white coworker was telling me how much he liked it when the black coworker jumps in the conversation and says "Oh me and my wife went above you and got an Impala" I said ok good for you. He said it like he'd just bought a 7 series BMW.

  • oshh16

    LOL

    Smh

  • Trey

    That aint gold...thats brass-gold tone ....

  • Ni Ni

    Me too

  • Trey

    Are you the DA?...didnt think so...they have evidence that supports a warrant

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Short men can’t be trusted. I’m tired of hearing about extension.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yes I know. But he was raising them as his own kids, so I still consider him the father.

  • Bri

    I guess the same way they tried to normalize all of XXX’s heinous actions. *Shrugs*

  • BrownIsBack

    I've never been the type that has to one up people. It's not that serious to me. I'm sure if I would've gotten a luxury vehicle (which is what I started to do) he would've said "Oh we looked at those"

  • BrownIsBack

    I think they have video from some of the cameras in the area. I haven't seen where they stated what was on the cameras

  • my view

    I have to be the DA to have questions? You stupid

  • my view

    That may be true but that doesn't mean they're right does it

  • Trey

    stupid is assuming the pics from his social media were the basis for a warrant

  • my view

    No stupid is assuming the pics are all i'm referring to

  • the conscious one

    "Honest living as an unlicensed tattoo artist", "Father of five"...this post is a mess ??????????

  • stav

    A total oxymoron!

  • Marlika

    ?? He earned a honest living being an unlicensed tattoo artist huh?

    Girlfriend looks like a bird ? How old is she with 5 phawking kids?

  • KcoolMuziq

    What kind of a woman would want a boyfriend like this to be the father of her kids? Smh

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Of course he's out chere stealing and thangs. How is he flashing trinkets and cash with 5 kids to feed? He's darn sure not making #DonnaBlackInkCrew money, much less O' type of cash for those jailhouse looking tats.
    OT: These " new hard celebs" refuse to use debit cards or write old school checks just like they refuse to wear a condom, huh?

  • Keyshia Ray

    Why is this dude being highlighted ijs.

  • Ciana

    ??????

    I think she is telling us more about the scum bag...not really highlighting

  • blue skies

    give him the same thang he gave X

  • blue skies

    ikr!

  • blue skies

    scrum bag!

  • oshh16

    Why for, is what I ask myself when people do that.
    It is far better to humble and grateful to God for what he enabled you to have/do..than going around boasting, bragging and trying to one up people. It just make you look and sound real pressed.

  • Django the God

    His legs look like Roscoe off Martin.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Ive truly wasted my education. This lil leprechaun managed to make more money than I do doing illegal tattooes. He can afford to take care of a litter of children and dawn grams of gold, where expensive garb and drive fancy whips without paying taxes. Now he will get to retire in Florida with free meals and hangout with his pals n a gated community. Oh I must do better!

  • Candance

    lol not the gated community hahahahahahah

  • We Can Do This

    I guess we'll see. I understand they've wrongly imprisoned people in the past for crimes they didn't commit, but their methods are a little more sophisticated now.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    He did it. Don't need no dam proof!

  • Meme

    "begged for his life" this made me so sad

  • Solstice

    Lol ?. I hear you. I’m 5’9 myself.

  • We Can Do This

    There are real demons out here and I'm not really into all that. But what else can it be?

    Everything about us is wrong. I know we have black scholars and professionals and people out here doing the best they can, but something went terribly wrong with US!

  • Purevenom

    That last pic looks like the lil boy roscoe from Martin legs

  • Solstice

    Yes! As long as shorty is ok with my 4-5 inch heels, he’s ok. If bruh has a problem with it, then it’s no bueno. I’m not foregoing my heels just so he can feel good or somewhat adequate. But the short guys I dated never had an issue. ?

  • Soon2BWife

    How does a man care for 5 kids being an illegal tattoo artist? He doesn’t, your tax dollars do.

  • BrownIsBack

    It's clear he needs constant validation from white people because those are the only ones around when he starts bragging

  • Soon2BWife

    I wonder did he iron those cuffs in?

  • BrownIsBack

    I don't get off on material stuff. If you have it that's nice and good for you and there's no need to compare what you have to others. We have the same features he just paid more than I did

    And they are still long. ? Dumb and short. Not a good combo. Lil Napoleon complex?

  • dontgetblocked

    All I see is a dumb nygga who will be executed once his appeals are used up. Excuse me. A dumb, midget of a nygga. I'm surprised he could reach the window to shoot XXX. That's probably why XXX's last words were: "What the fluk." He probably couldn't see anything but the gun pointing because that small azz nygga is shorter than the window.

  • MsVAllDay

    He does look a little slow up top doh.

  • MsVAllDay

    LMFAO

  • dontgetblocked

    That's why he was with that woman who doesn't know how to use birth control. She treated him like he was one of her little ones...because...well... he's little.

  • MsVAllDay

    I was wondering what evidence they had on him. If he did this he is one dumb azz muthaf&*^%&

  • MsVAllDay

    Good point!

  • dontgetblocked

    He'll get death.

    why are we writing up on this boy. Sandra we don't need to know about his life. he's becoming a celebrity now, he should not get this shine.

  • Meme

    I'm telling you throughout the diaspora! Don't get me started on Africa hmmmm

  • Bee jaay Cee

    Read on another blog that he used a silencer....on a random crime??????? Let the conspiracy theories begin.

  • cherrypie

    He's little af. I'm 5'3. Ewwww. We would be eye to eye. They gonna love that little dude in the pen. Its a shame that two lives and two families are forever changed.

  • J2PC

    Being infamous (well-known for something bad) is not being a celebrity. -know the difference. lol

  • J2PC

    Sandra. smh You contradicted making and "honest" living with the fact that he makes $$$ without a proper license. -how do we even know hustled $$$ even is accounted for and taxed properly???

    I know you're trying to help...but, really? In this case, it's a face palm. smh

  • J2PC

    Now, she will be back to being a single-mom again. But, this time alone struggling with 5 kids. Take some of that $$$ and spend it on become a LPN or Assistant OT or something in with a decent pay in the medical field.

    That builds up both self-esteem while laying the foundation for her children to see her as a positive role-model in their lives so that they will go on to reach even higher.

    She can also be in school part-time and working. -especially, while they are in school and she is able to save on childcare cost.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The youngest boy is not hers.

    News report said he was the driver who blocked in the xxx persons car while the 2 gun men jumped out

  • luVn_liFe…

    I'm from broward; Riva is less then two miles south of me.
    it's reported( short stuff) up top was the driver, the other two who still have not been apprenhended jump out of the passenger side w/guns and robbed and shot dude.

    short stuff up top was identified in the surveillance cameras by his orange slides. :shrug: idk this is what has been reported

  • luVn_liFe…

    its not the same guy

  • luVn_liFe…

    yep, I just said that below.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Worthless MF. Another inadequate black man who loathe the idea that another black man built his own mini-empire from nothing to living his dream, affording trinkets, etc. Its your fault you spent your life and energy doing nothing but building a rap sheet.

    He probably spoke to X in the shop and everything, then made a call to one of his worth nothing homies to join the hit. Niggly bears strike again and leaving a trail of questions and heartache.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Well you see what she chose, so.

  • nicfury420

    I’m confused. How is he a suspect of “this” crime?? All I have heard was that he was arrested on suspicion of criminal activities. But I know how these blogs are he could’ve been arrested on something else and just because it happened around the same time as X being shot they want to say he was involved.

  • TrollingStoned

    They have video of him bragging about what his last words were and that x knew what he did to his cousin

  • TrollingStoned

    Seems like a push over until he had the gun in his hand.

  • RealATLPeach36

    5 kids no she need to be a RN supervisor sheessshhh kids are expensive. Schooling camp travels food water Gatorade shoes uniforms hair cut teeth cleaning broken body parts nannies cars to accommodate my fly yet his safety games year worth of raining day money and tutors I swear I do not see it! I thank God I have an awesome co-parent

    I make good money but I’m securing his bag for his future rather it’s college or self-employment

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Ditto to what you said...I don't know and never heard of neither but this summarizes today's ",it" boys. Flush the toilet on all them lil niggles! My stomach rumble's every time I see the like of them! AND MY FEELING HAVENT A DAM THING TO DO WITH SELF HATE BUT ALL OF MY DISDAIN AND DISAPPOINTMENT FOR THE LIKES OF THESE TYPE!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

  • jadapooh2

    ?????

  • jadapooh2

    I think he only got $10,000 out the LV bag. That’s sad and not worth taking a life and spending the rest of your life in prison. Why couldn’t he just have taken the bag but let the young man live? ??????????

  • jadapooh2

    Honest living my a$$. He made $10,000 by takibgbit and a life. He has no license.

  • nicfury420

    Oh damn! Ok. Thx.

  • J2PC

    One step at a time. Let's start with getting her a reachable job first. Sometimes, po' Black folks will lose interest if you overwhelmed them with that which seems not within reach. -let's get a her the 2yr LPN degree first for a decent job.

    Then once she gets use to managing that as the kids progress with age, it'll be easier for her to pursue a LPN to BSN nursing degree online at reputable state school. In time with experience behind her, she go for APRN/NP to become a supervisor.

    A check is better than NO check from a job. -gotta start from somewhere.

  • J2PC

    Especially, once she starts visiting him in prison she will feel all warm & fuzzy getting hit on by other inmates.

    Maybe she is one of those who will shop for the next newly released ex-cons at an ATL penitentiary exit door. -hopefully, the cycle will not repeat itself & she will finally break free of the mentality or lifestyle for the sake of her kids. ijs

    Welp. Hope so. Proven fact iy won't happen
